Fast Flowers

Busy busy---working on the house this weekend. We are getting LOTS done!!!

Since I don't have much time today---here is a ten minute card I made using Framed Flowers from Gina K Designs.

I stamped the frame and then the grass stamp from the set. Then I inked only the stems and leaves from one of the flower bunches and stamped it on top of the grass. I added the primas and punched a Nestability scalloped rectangle and placed it underneath the strip of patterned paper. I layered the flower panel on top and stamped the sentiment.

Easy peasy!


Materials used: Stamps-Framed Flowers (Carolyn King distributed by Gina K Designs); cardstock-white, olive; designer paper-SU!; ink-black, olive, choc chip; primas; brads (The Paper Studio and SU!); Cuttlebug and nestability dies; dimensionals (SU!); corner rounder punch (SU!).



Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful 10 minute card. It takes me more than 10 minutes just to decide what paper I want to use, then the ink, etc, etc. Thanks for the great card.

Judi said...

What a cute idea! So true what Sara said. I was going to say, your 10 minutes is like mine in dog years, that would make mine 70 minutes, lol. Or something like that....

Definitely a good idea! And now I am inspired to pull out an old flower stamp I have and give it new life with my primas (that also need to be used again!).
